1 Ko e lea fakatātā ʻa Soape ʻaia naʻe ueʻi ʻaki ʻae loto ʻoe tuʻi ke ne toe ʻomi ʻa ʻApisalomi ki hono fale ʻi Selūsalema. 25 Ko e toulekeleka ʻo ʻApisalomi, pea ko hono louʻulu, pea mo ʻene fānau. 28 ʻI heʻene hili ʻae taʻu ʻe ua ʻoku ʻomi ʻa ʻApisalomi ʻe Soape ki he ʻao ʻoe tuʻi.
Pea ko eni, naʻe mamata ʻe Soape, ko e tama ʻo Selaia, kuo ngaue ʻae loto ʻoe tuʻi kia ʻApisalomi. Pea naʻe ʻalu ʻae fekau ʻa Soape ki Tikoa, ʻo ne ʻomi mei ai ʻae fefine poto, pea ne ne pehē kiate ia, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ke fai ʻe koe ʻo hangē ko ha fefine tangi, pea ke ʻai eni ʻae kofu fakatauangaʻa, pea ʻoua naʻa ke tākai ʻaki koe ha lolo, ka ke hangē ko ha fefine kuo mamahi fuoloa koeʻuhi ko e pekia: pea ke haʻu ki he tuʻi, pea ke lea pehē ni kiate ia.” Pea ko ia, naʻe ʻai ʻe Soape ʻae ngaahi lea ki hono ngutu.
¶ Pea ʻi heʻene hoko ʻo lea ʻae fefine mei Tikoa ki he tuʻi, naʻa ne tō hifo ki hono mata ki he kelekele, ʻo ne fai fakaʻapaʻapa, mo ne pehē ʻe ia, “ʻE tuʻi, ke ke tokoni mai.” Pea naʻe pehē kiate ia ʻe he tuʻi, “Ko e hā hoʻo mamahi?” Pea naʻa ne pehēange, “Ko e fefine paea moʻoni au, he kuo pekia ʻa hoku ʻunoho. Pea naʻe maʻu ʻe hoʻo kaunanga ʻae tama ʻe toko ua, pea naʻa na fekeʻikeʻi ʻi he ngoue, pea naʻe ʻikai ʻi ai ha tokotaha ke fakamavae ʻakinaua, pea naʻe taaʻi ʻae tokotaha ʻa hono tokoua, ʻo ne tāmateʻi ia. Pea vakai, kuo hiki ʻita mai ʻae kāinga kotoa pē ki hoʻo kaunanga, pea kuo nau pehē, Tuku mai ia ʻaia naʻe teʻia ʻa hono tokoua, koeʻuhi ke mau tāmateʻi ia, koeʻuhi ko e moʻui ʻa hono tokoua ʻaia naʻa ne tāmateʻi; pea neongo ko e tama hoko ia, te mau tāmateʻi ia: pea ka pehē, tā ʻe tāmateʻi ʻae malalaʻi afi ʻoku kei toe kiate au, pea ʻe ʻikai tuku ki hoku ʻunoho ha hingoa pe ha toenga hako ʻi he funga ʻo māmani.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi ki he fefine, “ʻAlu koe ki ho fale, pea te u tokanga ʻo fai ha fekau ki hoʻo meʻa.” Pea naʻe pehēange ʻe he fefine Tikoa ki he tuʻi, “ʻE Tuʻi, ko hoku ʻeiki, ka kuo halaia, pea tuku ia kiate au, pea ki he fale ʻo ʻeku tamai: pea ke taʻehalaia ai ʻae tuʻi, pea mo hono nofoʻanga fakatuʻi.” 10 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi, “Kapau ʻe lea ha tokotaha kiate koe, ʻomi ia kiate au, pea ʻe ʻikai te ne toe ala kiate koe.” 11 Pea naʻe toki pehēange ʻe ia, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke manatuʻi ʻe he tuʻi kia Sihova ko ho ʻOtua, ke ʻoua naʻa ke tuku ʻae kau totongi toto ke toe fai ha maumau, telia naʻa nau tāmateʻi ʻa ʻeku tama.” Pea naʻa ne pehē ʻe ia, ʻo hangē ʻoku moʻui ʻa Sihova, “ʻE ʻikai ha tuʻoni louʻulu ʻo ho tama ʻe tō ki he kelekele.” 12 Pea naʻe toki pehē ai ʻe he fefine, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, tuku ki hoʻo kaunanga ke ne fai ha lea ki hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi.” Pea naʻa ne pehē ʻe ia, “Ke ke lea pe.” 13 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he fefine, “Pea ko e hā ai kuo ke fakakaukau ki ha meʻa pehē ki he kakai ʻae ʻOtua? ʻOku lea ʻaki eni ʻe he tuʻi ʻo hangē ko ha taha ʻoku halaia, ko e meʻa ʻi he ʻikai toe ʻomi ki ʻapi ʻaia kuo ne fakahēʻi. 14 He kuo pau pe ke tau mate, pea tau hangē ko e vai kuo lilingi ki he kelekele, ʻaia ʻoku ʻikai faʻa tānaki hake; pea ʻoku ʻikai filifilimānako ʻae ʻOtua ki ha tokotaha: ka neongo ia ʻoku ne fakakaukauʻi ʻae meʻa ke ʻoua naʻa kapusi meiate ia ʻaia kuo fakahēʻi. 15 Pea ko eni foki, kuo u haʻu au ke lea ʻi he meʻa ni ki he tuʻi ko hoku ʻeiki, koeʻuhi kuo fakamanavahēʻi au ʻe he kakai: pea naʻe pehē ʻe hoʻo kaunanga, Ko eni te u lea ki he tuʻi; heiʻilo ʻe fai ʻe he tuʻi ki he kole ʻa ʻene kaunanga. 16 Koeʻuhi ʻe fanongo ʻe he tuʻi, ke ne fakamoʻui ai ʻa ʻene kaunanga mei he nima ʻoe tangata ʻoku fie fakaʻauha fakataha au mo hoku tama mei he tofiʻa ʻoe ʻOtua. 17 Pea naʻe toki pehē ʻe hoʻo kaunanga, Ko e lea ʻa hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi ʻe hoko ni ko e fakafiemālie: he ko hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi, ʻoku hangē ia ko ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻOtua ʻi heʻene ʻiloʻi ʻae lelei mo e kovi: ko ia ʻe ʻiate koe ʻa Sihova ko ho ʻOtua.” 18 Pea naʻe toki pehēange ʻe he tuʻi ki he fefine, “ʻOku ou kole kiate koe, ke ʻoua naʻa ke fufū meiate au ʻae meʻa ʻaia teu fehuʻi ai ni kiate koe.” Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he fefine, “Ke lea pe eni ʻa hoku ʻeiki ko e tuʻi.” 19 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi, “ʻIkai ʻoku kau mo koe ʻae nima ʻo Soape ʻi he meʻa ni kotoa pē?” Pea naʻe lea ʻo pehēange ʻe he fefine, “ʻO hangē ʻoku moʻui ho laumālie, ʻe ʻeiki ko e tuʻi: he ko hoʻo tamaioʻeiki ko Soape, ko ia ne ne fekauʻi au, mo ne ʻai ʻae ngaahi lea ni kotoa pē ki he ngutu ʻo hoʻo kaunanga: 20 Kuo fai ʻae meʻa ni ʻe hoʻo tamaioʻeiki ko Soape koeʻuhi ke tupu ai ʻae lea pehē ni: pea ʻoku poto ʻa hoku ʻeiki, ʻo tatau mo e poto ʻo ha ʻāngelo ʻae ʻOtua, ke ʻilo ʻaia kotoa pē ʻoku ʻi māmani.”
21 ¶ Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi kia Soape, “Vakai mai, kuo u fai ʻae meʻa ni: ko ia ke ke ʻalu ʻo toe ʻomi ʻae tangata talavou ko ʻApisalomi.” 22 Pea naʻe tō hifo ʻa Soape ki hono mata ki he kelekele, pea naʻa ne punou, ʻo ne fakafetaʻi ki he tuʻi: pea naʻe pehē ʻe Soape, “Kuo ʻilo ʻe hoʻo tamaioʻeiki he ʻaho ni kuo u maʻu ʻae ʻofa ʻi ho ʻao, ʻa koe ko hoku ʻeiki, ʻe tuʻi, ko e meʻa ʻi he fai ʻe he tuʻi ki he kole ʻa hoʻo tamaioʻeiki.” 23 Ko ia naʻe tuʻu hake ai ʻa Soape ʻo ne ʻalu ki Kesuli, pea ne ʻomi ʻa ʻApisalomi ki Selūsalema. 24 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe he tuʻi, “Tuku ke ne ʻalu ki hono fale ʻoʻona, pea ʻoua siʻi naʻa ne sio mai ki hoku fofonga.” Ko ia naʻe tafoki ai ʻa ʻApisalomi ki hono fale ʻoʻona, pea naʻe ʻikai sio ia ki he fofonga ʻoe tuʻi.
25 ¶ Ka naʻe ʻikai ha tokotaha ʻi ʻIsileli kotoa pē naʻe ongoongolelei ʻene toulekeleka ke hangē ko ʻApisalomi: mei hono ʻaofi vaʻe ʻo aʻu ki he tumuʻaki ʻo hono ʻulu naʻe ʻikai siʻi ha mele ʻiate ia. 26 Pea ʻi heʻene kosi hono louʻulu, (he naʻa ne kosi ia ʻi he kuonga niʻihi: he naʻe mamafa ia kiate ia, pea ko ia naʻa ne kosi ai ia:) naʻa ne fakamamafa ʻae louʻulu ʻo hono ʻulu ko e sikeli ʻe uangeau ʻo fakatatau mo e fakamamafa ʻae tuʻi. 27 Pea naʻe fanauʻi kia ʻApisalomi ʻae foha ʻe toko tolu, mo e ʻofefine ʻe tokotaha, ʻaia naʻe hingoa ko Tamaa: ko e fefine ia naʻe mata hoihoifua.
28 ¶ Ko ia naʻe nofo ai ʻa ʻApisalomi ʻi Selūsalema ʻi he taʻu kātoa ʻe ua, ka naʻe ʻikai ke ne sio ki he fofonga ʻoe tuʻi. 29 Pea naʻe fekau ai ʻe ʻApisalomi kia Soape ke ne haʻu ʻo ʻalu ki he tuʻi; ka naʻe ʻikai fie haʻu ia kiate ia: pea ʻi heʻene fekau ʻo liunga ua, naʻe ʻikai te ne haʻu. 30 Ko ia naʻa ne pehē ai ki heʻene kau tamaioʻeiki, “Vakai, ʻoku ofi mai ʻae ngoue ʻa Soape ki hoku potu ʻoʻoku, pea ʻoku ʻi ai ʻene paʻale; ʻalu ʻo tutu ia.” Pea naʻe tutu ʻae ngoue ʻe he kau tamaioʻeiki ʻa ʻApisalomi. 31 Pea naʻe tuʻu hake ai ʻa Soape, ʻo ne haʻu ki he fale ʻo ʻApisalomi, ʻo ne pehē kiate ia, “Ko e hā kuo tutu ai ʻe hoʻo kau tamaioʻeiki ʻa ʻeku ngoue? 32 Pea naʻe pehē ʻe ʻApisalomi kia Soape, “Vakai, naʻaku fekau atu kiate koe, ʻo pehē, Haʻu kiate au, koeʻuhi ke u fekau atu koe ki he tuʻi, ke pehē, ‘Ko e hā kuo u haʻu ai mei Kesuli? ʻE lelei pe ʻo ka ne u kei ʻi ai ni:’ kae tuku eni ke u mamata ki he fofonga ʻoe tuʻi; pea kapau ʻoku ʻiate au ha meʻa hala, tuku ke ne tāmateʻi au.” 33 Ko ia naʻe haʻu ai ʻa Soape ki he tuʻi, ʻo ne fakahā ki ai: pea hili ʻa ʻene ui kia ʻApisalomi naʻa ne haʻu ki he tuʻi, pea naʻa ne punou hifo ia mo hono mata ki he kelekele ʻi he ʻao ʻoe tuʻi: pea naʻe ʻuma ʻe he tuʻi kia ʻApisalomi.
